Today's Advent Passage: Luke 1:35

And Mary said to the angel, "How will this be, since I am a virgin?" And the angel answered her, "The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore the child to be born will be called holy--the Son of God. (Luke 1:34-35 ESV)

We can always trust God when He asks us to surrender.

Mary's surrender was to become the virgin mother of the Son of God. Our surrender will not be as dramatic, but we can always trust God.

His character is Holy. The fruit that is borne when He comes upon us and overshadows us will always be Holy.

Let us then say with Mary, "Behold, I am the servant of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word." And the angel departed from her. - (Luke 1:38 ESV)

Praise God for the miracle of the virgin birth, a miracle beyond comprehension. Take a moment to be awed once again by the idea of a holy God wrapped in human flesh.
